Manual Transmission Service & Repair Waterloo, Ontario

A manual transmission has a clutch, which is responsible for transferring power from the engine to the transmission, allowing the driver to switch gears and control your driving experience. Compared to an automatic transmission, the manual transmission is mostly made up of mechanical gears that rely on the drive to shift.

Manual transmission service is essential for keeping your manual transmission in optimal condition. Transmission fluid naturally degrades over time, which is why replacing your transmission fluid is important to keep your gears shifting smoothly. How often you need to change your transmission fluid depends on the year, make and model of your vehicle, give your local Mister Transmission a call to find out when you

Common Problems for Manual Transmission

If you are experiencing any of the following problems, you should get your transmission checked as soon as possible. Recognizing these warning signs early is key to minimizing the cost of your repair as it may only require a minor repair or service

– Check engine light is on

– Grinding Noises

So far I have only trusted Pennzoil guys located in Waterloo for my car.I had to get my transmission fluid changed and they recommended this place. Needless to say, got the best service and am so happy that I have one more car service to trust for any of my future car servicing needs.

Kendra Fountain
I've never written a Google review before, but these guys are so awesome I have to praise them. I'm a university student from outside of the KW region, and I stopped in for a service with Chris in October. They told me to stop by if I needed anything in the future (another service, referral to another auto-shop for other issues, general questions) and so I stopped by today looking for a referral to someone that could fix my windshield wiper. Scott fixed it with no charge and put the problem into simple terms so I could understand the issue and know what to look out for in the future. When I was leaving, Scott said "You're a customer! We take care of you." I always leave this location with a smile, thank you!
